Who We Are?

The Little Urban Centre (LUC) Educational Group started preparations for the founding of FGA (FutureGrow Academy) five years ago in 2013. FGA follows an educational programmewhich strives to nurture children with our core values and provide them with the qualities that will ensure their success in the world in the 21st century. During the process of preparation, FGA has been attracting attention from well-educated families with high aspirations and those with an international outlook.

Invited by Pujiang Hi-tech Zone, Caohejing Development Area of Shanghai, LUC opened its second school FGA in 2018 in the centre of Pujiang after having successfully established LUC Preschool in the Century Park area, Pudong. Based on the international bilingual education system, FGA will adopt the well-regarded Project-Based Learning (PBL) approach and incorporate the globally well-known Caltech STEM course which integrates the arts education to form a “STEM+ART” curriculum.

FGA targets families with an international outlook and strives to nurture the children with ourcorevaluesandprovidethem with the qualities that will ensure their success in the world in the 21st century.

Lucian’s Values

We view all our school community as learners and through providing a broad and balanced international and bilingual curriculum we aim to become:

Curious Inquirers – We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life.

Reflective Thinkers – We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses in order to support our learning and personal development.

Open-minded Communicators – We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to gain experience and grow into a better future.

Risk takers – We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are persevering and resilient in the face of challenges and change.

Responsible Citizens – We act with integrity and honesty and we take responsibility for our actions and their consequences. We show empathy, compassion and respect. We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives–intellectual, physical and emotional–to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.
